About St. Andrews Orthodox Church

gallery-index-3St. Andrew’s is a growing church of about 60 families of various ethnic backgrounds. In addition, St. Andrew’s has many members who are former members of various faith traditions. Visitors are always welcome and parishioners are encouraged to bring their Orthodox and non-Orthodox friends to attend the liturgy. Our services are conducted in English.

The Antiochian Orthodox Church, of which St. Andrew’s is a part, traces its origins to the church in Antioch, the capital of ancient Syria, that was established by the apostles Peter and Paul.

Although the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America was founded in the late 19th century to serve immigrants from Syria and Lebanon, today it embraces Americans of all races and cultures.

The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church’s roots trace directly back to first century Antioch, the city in which the disciples of Jesus Christ were first called “Christians” (Acts 11:26). The Orthodox Church is the oldest and second largest Christian group in the world. We are called by God our creator to worship and follow Him, and to proclaim to the world His message of love, peace, and salvation.
